A Valentine Video Tutorial – by Darsie Bruno

Did you know Darsie has been doing a lot of videos? She recently started and you can find them all over at her YouTube Channel and I’m so excited that today she has added a video showing us how she created this totally over-the-top Valentine using some beautiful Spellbinders dies and JustRite stamps. In the video she also shows us how she colors with Gelatos using a baby wipe. It’s a fabulous tutorial, producing a beautiful card that I know you’ll love! The curved shape on the card front got me from “hello”, as they say! Here’s a quick look at the card with the supply list (many of the items used are reduced!!!!) and link to Darsie’s YouTube video:
